A new iPhone 7 Plus prototype has leaked out weeks ahead of its official debut, and not only is it a working handset running regular iOS, but it’s also finished in a beautiful blue that could be added to the iPhone lineup this fall.
Yet another iPhone 7 Plus mockup has been captured on video ahead of Apple’s official unveiling this fall, but this one’s a little more exciting than most.
Not only is it thought to be the most accurate representation of the iPhone 7 Plus we’ve seen so far, but it also comes in a new blue finish that could replace the space gray option in Apple’s next-generation iPhone lineup.
It’s been a little while since we heard this year’s iPhone refresh will come in blue, but China Unicom just reignited the rumor with the teaser above. The image features what looks like an iPhone 7 that is to be available in four color options — none of which are space gray.
As we detailed in another post earlier this week, Apple’s new iOS 6 beta features a nifty new status bar that changes color to match the app you’re currently running. We provided a number of screenshots that showed the status bar in three different shades of blue, and in silver — colors the status bar never displayed in iOS 5.
So how does the status bar determine which color to use? Well, it’s actually pretty simple.
